Bought some new tires for my gator the other day. When I pulled the front right wheel off I noticed the dust boot nearest the hub was torn. Ordered and got in a replacement and went to change it. Pulled the wheel off, the brake assy, and the hub. There is not enough clearance to get the spindle/drive shaft clear of its housing so I can remove the old boot and replace it. I'm not quite sure what to take apart next to get this project finished. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not familiar with that machine, but typically you would need to separate the steering knuckle from the lower control arm at the ball joint. Then you can swing the knuckle out far enough to get the axle free. You may also need to remove the axle from the differential and disassemble the inner joint to replace the outer boot, because the outer joint is not designed to come apart. Some are, some are not.
